Last Wednesday, Witherspoon tweeted a photo of herself in retro-styled clothing with the caption: ‘Hey January Jones, how am I doing? Thinking of submitting this image with my #MadMen reboot application.’

‘You forgot the cigarette but perfect otherwise!’ one user said.
‘I’d watch any #MadMen reboot, but especially one with you, Reese!’ another said.
